Primark Sportwear review

as some of you may know I joined the gym on the 2nd of February and so far so good. 
I needed to buy some sports wear stuff and as I wasn't sure of my willpower I basically went for the cheapest options which are Sports Direct and to my surprise Primark.
You all know about the bargains you can find at Sports Direct (online and instore) and I did buy a really cool swimsuit for when I use the pool at the gym.
Anyway, about Primark, they now have a sports wear section! yay so the last time I visited one (in Manchester) I bought a pair of leggings (long leg ones) in size UK20 and they fit amazing and at £6 they are really worth it. I have washed them a few times now and they are staying in a decent condition compare to their nomal £3 leggings that break quite easily.
I also bought the top I'm showing you below and it's really comfy and true to size, it comes with a little bra section but I use my sports bra from Debenhams (38 E) underneath as I need something really supportive.

So what do you think, did you know Primark had a sport range?
Finally, myself in action playing squash with my boyfriend.

Bare Face with Bare Minerals

Hello my lovelies,
just a quick post to say that I finally tried the Bare Minerals foundation, thanks to the Cheltenham Boots lady that so kindly gave me a sample and tried on me to find out what shade I was (I am fair by the way) and I have to say that I loved it and I am planning to save up to get hold of one of their packs (price £50 worth £121) which includes the brushes, a primer, the foundation and other stuff you need:
- bareMinerals Original SPF 15 Foundation Medium 2g 
- bareMinerals Original SPF 15 Foundation Medium Beige 2g
- bareMinerals Original Mineral Veil Finishing Powder 2g
- bareMinerals Warmth All-Over Face Color 1.5g
- bareMinerals Full Flawless Face Brush
- bareMinerals Flawless Application Face Brush
- bareMinerals Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush
- bareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer 15ml
- bareMinerals How-To DVD shows you how to Swirl, Tap, Buff® your way back to the skin you were born with.

When you visit their website for the 1st time and enter your email you'll get a 10% code emailed to you, unfortunately 'the get started kit' it's out of stock at the moment but it should be still available at a Bare Minerals counter near you.
You may think this post it's a bit lame and you knew all about it already, but I am not a make up guru, I don't buy lots and lots of make up because I hardly use it, I normally put some concealer under my eyes a bit of gloss and I am out.
Now that I am going to the gym a lot, a natural look is a must, but my face started to develop some kind of blemishes ( I think it's all about reaching the 30's, it's all down hill you know!) that after trying the mineral foundation I am really pleased with the results and I will be buying it!
I have posted below a before and after pics (taken within 2 minutes of each other) no filters, same light (I was sitting in the same spot) so I think the difference is clear and so easy to apply.
Have you tried any mineral foundation before? What do you think of the results?
